'Everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow.' says Markus Mannström, Executive Vice President of Stora Enso’s Biomaterials division.
Stora Enso is one of the founding members of #GreenSource – an initiative to promote the forest-fibre industries role in achieving the EU’s climate neutrality target by 2050.
#GreenSource brings together the pulp* and the paper** industries. A recent scientific study on the climate effect of the forest and the forest-based sector in the EU shows that they remove CO2 corresponding to 20% of the EU’s annual emissions from the atmosphere.
While reducing they’re also creating – 3,5 million jobs to be more specific. A scientific fact that states the unique position that the forest sector holds when it comes to leading the transition from a linear to a circular economy, pointed out by Markus Mannström.

Humans’ urge to communicate has always been strong – and with the evolution of paper, the written form of communicating opened a whole new world of efficiency, suddenly dismantling geographical boundaries. Naturally, the history of papermaking is closely connected to societal, industrial, and cultural events.
